Comments from consumers who have used this trader
I got to know about Geoff Gardner from another tradesman who did a good job for us, so I contacted him. Geoff came, measured up for our small garage extension, had a chat explaining how he envisaged the job, advising on various details, and after agreeing on how the job should be done, he went away to work out his estimate. We received the estimate by email within the week, accepted it and rang Geoff to arrange a start date. Geoff visited to ensure that he had the best (and most reasonably priced) brick match to our house. The date came and at 08.30, as arranged, there was Geoff and Paul, his very able assistant, ready to start work. All work went to plan with Geoff thinking ahead at every stage to see if he could bring down prices yet keep the work and materials to his high standard. Geoff and Paul clean up at the end of the day wherever necessary and ensure that all is well (we even found out that Geoff was very proficient with a vacuum cleaner ..... but don't tell his wife) and Geoff kept us informed as to how work was progressing on a regular basis. We are very pleased with the work Geoff and Paul have done for us and have no hesitation in recommending him.
Geoff and Paul built our ground floor wrap around extension. From the first meeting with Geoff I felt comfortable and confident in his abilities, and now the build is completed I am so pleased we chose him. What you see is what you get. There are no airs and graces with Geoff, he’s been in this business for a long time so he knows what he is talking about.
You are consulted at every point in the build, and if there is money to be saved Geoff will make sure the savings are passed onto you. He looks around for the best deals in materials, which is such a benefit in the current climate. He will make suggestions and advise on changes that could be done. You may or may not agree with him, ultimately it’s your decision, but bear in mind Geoff has been in this trade for a very long time so he knows what he is talking about, but as I said it’s your decision and he will abide by that. What I will say is all his suggestions on our build have worked out perfectly and I am so glad we listened to him.
His workmanship is second to none. He is a perfectionist, and sometimes you might think he is going over the top, but no, it’s just how he is, he won’t change and I wouldn’t want him too. He won’t cut corners he takes his time and makes sure everything is done properly. It may take longer but remember it’s in your interest. Geoff takes so much pride his work, which is evident in the finished product. We just love our extension.
Geoff is honest and reliable and we would not hesitate to use him again, and would recommend him without hesitation. We appreciate everything he did for us. I must also mention Paul who works Geoff all the time. He is helpful, reliable and never moans no matter what the weather or situation, well not that I know of. I know Geoff uses different tradesmen but I must mention Baz the electrician who really knows his stuff, lovely man. And Chris the plasterer, he did an excellent job.
We started out with a builder, now we have a friend that’s a builder. It’s a pity all tradesmen are not as conscientious as Geoff!
I simply cannot rate these guys highly enough. This is the thirds time I've had them back to do work in the house. This time it was a quite complex and difficult shaped bathroom that was in need of an overhaul. Despite a few set backs and issues the work was completed to a fantastic standard and both within time and cost. I would not hesitate in recommending Geoff and Paul to anyone.
After 30 years of DIY maintenance our flat-roofed front-door porch finally deteriorated beyond further repair in 2015.
We called Geoff who helped us to design our ideal brick-built porch, incorporating a solid concrete foundation, insulated cavity walls, uPVC double glazing, and a dual pitch tiled roof. He fully understood all our personal requirements for the project, from the safe demolition of the old wooden structure right through to the finishing coat of plaster inside the new one. He quoted a fair price that exactly suited our budget and we arranged a mutually beneficial time slot in February 2016.
Despite cold weather and winter showers Geoff and Paul worked cheerfully and diligently to complete the project on time. We are more than delighted with the final outcome; it is a very sound construction which blends in perfectly with the surrounding neighbourhood.
Phil, Ruth and Gladys.
Excellent work by Geoff & Paul.
Nothing too much trouble.
Came every day until work completed.
Also recommended other excellent tradesmen.
Highly recommended. Wouldn't hesitate
to use again.
Excellent Standard of work carried out by Geoff and his colleague. Completed on time, to an exceptional finish. Really happy and will definitely use this Builder again.
Geoff Gardner and Paul are the best tradesmen we have ever come across . They are hardworking, honest, reliable lads who are pleasant and great to be around . Geoff is a perfectionist and has everything done to a high standard . We had our extension completed within weeks and his prices are fantastic . We are having them back again as soon as we can to flag our back garden and would without doubt recommend them to anyone . Can't praise them enough
Fantastic service all round , speedy, hardworking and fantastic results , would definitely use again and recommend to anyone .
Geoff and Paul originally did some work building for me just under two years ago (see review from March 2013). From previous experience, I had no hesitation getting them back to fit our en suite bathroom. Once again they've been punctual, tidy, a good set of lads to have round the house but most importantly have completed the work to an excellent standard. I'm already planning to have them back to sort out my main bathroom. I cannot speak highly enough of Geoff and Paul and would recommend them to anyone.
Very amenable with keen quotations
The work done was to a very high quality with full consideration to the occupiers. I would have no hesitation in asking this gentleman to do more work for me
I would just like to add my recommendation to the many others for this extremely honest, trustworthy and dedicated builder.
Geoff together with Paul (his very able assistant) and some excellent additional tradespeople he recommended,recently completed a full width extension and substantial renovation of my property.
Geoff is someone who will always go above and beyond, to make sure everything he does is to the highest standard. He will look for the best value for your money when purchasing materials and his wealth of knowledge is invaluable.
Him and Paul were an absolute pleasure to have around, hard working, tidy and I couldn't be happier with what they have achieved. I consider myself very lucky to have found them on the Trader site.
Geoff did a great job converting part of my garage and everything was completed on time, in budget and to a great standard. Couldn't be happier with the result!
We have used Geoff to rebuild / revamp our Kitchen. A lot of the work being done while were away from home, great job and Geoff also provides advice and opinion to take us through the planning and construction. I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Geoff has done my Kitchen and Bathroom. He went above and beyond to make sure that they were done to an excellent standard and used top of the range products. He is now a friend and has been back to help sort other little problems I have had following decorating excetera. He has worked tirelessly and I would definitely recommend him no matter what the job. He arranged the delivery of appliances and pointed me in the right direction for top of the range appliances at good prices.
Overall he is a reliable and hardworking tradesman who I would have back nomatter what the job. Thanks Geoff I love the work you have done as does everyone who has seen it.
Geoff provided a high standard of workmanship with the finish being excellent. He kept us informed throughout of any problems, and offered solutions if needed. His work was tidy with as little disruption as possible to the household and was excellent value. A very positive experience.
Geoff gardener I can honestly say is one of the best tradesmen I have ever come across the work he did for me was done with pride in his work and commitment to the job reliable and very skilled if you ever need a builder you will not be disappointed if you manage to get Geoff to do work for you I promise you tommy ashton
takes pride in his work puts a lot of thought in whatever job he takes on and very good rates for the work he undertakes reliable and hard working tommy ashton
I would recommend Geoff and Paul for any job. From the moment I made the first call for Geoff to complete a quote he was helpful. He has completed the fitting of a new shower unit in my bathroom and even gave advise on where I might find items cheaper and new shower wall instead of tiles which looks amazing. He has also completed some building work to the exterior and work on the roof. Throughout the work he keep me up to date with arising issues and gave advise that I knew I could trust. The job was completed efficiently and to a very high standard. I would trust Geoff and Paul to do any work I need in the future, worth every penny.
Very satisfied with work, time of completion and how property cleared up after work. Reliable and trustworthy.
More reassured choosing from register that amenity would be asssured.
Absolutely cannot say enough good things about Geoff and the standard of work provided. I initially contacted Geoff in August 2012. He informed me then that it would be November at the earliest that he could start any work as he was booked up. I appreciated his honesty and wanting to have the work start earlier, I decided to not progress it any further. Several months later and having been messed around by several builders wasting my time I contacted Geoff again. He informed me that he was fully booked til Feb/March time but could do the work then if required. Well worth the wait. Geoff and Paul were punctual, tidy, really nice gents and most importantly the work they have completed is top quality. If you need work doing and can afford to wait a while to get it done right first time...call Geoff. I know where to go when I need my bathroom and en suite done later this year. Thanks guys.
Geoff has worked for us on two occasions. Once for an extension and once to re fit our kitchen. The fact he came back a second time was a mark of how much we rated his service and quality of work.
He provides an honest reliable service and has great knowledge. He is always tidy in his work and eager to give you as the customer the best he possibly can. Would I recomend him ? Yes time and time again and already have done to friends in need of a trustworthy tradesman who knows his stuff.
Geoff and Paul have recently installed eleven uPVC windows and a back door in our 1950’s house, and we could not praise the quality of their workmanship more highly.
The success of this project was evident right from the start when Geoff came to examine the property thoroughly taking accurate measurements to ensure that the new frames would sit snugly and securely. He gave us sound advice on the styles of windows and doors available enabling us to make quick confident decisions for every room.
Excellent teamwork and skilful use of high quality tools ensured that the old wooden frames and fragile glass were dismantled and disposed of safely and efficiently; even the daily needs of the four family cats were taken into consideration.
All of the new frames fitted perfectly and were sealed and trimmed neatly inside and out. We instantly noticed that the house felt warmer and quieter and that the old problems of draughts and condensation had been completely solved.
Thanks to Geoff and Paul we can now finish off our own internal decorations confident that we are restoring new life and vitality to our family home.

Couldn't fault any of Geoffs work from start to finish, He replaced a full bathroom from removing old suite and replacing with completley different style, retiled all walls and floor, rebuilt a c upboard and put a new ceiling in. He was very clean in all his work. I would recommend him to anyone.
Recommend Geoff and Paul without hesitation. Done a outstanding job on brick work and honest lads to have around the house. Able to leave them alone to get on with job. Work completed on time and good communication. Well done to both of them!
We were more than delighted with the important repair work carried out by Geoff and Paul on our aging Victorian terraced house. Geoff understood exactly what needed to be done and explained clearly how long it would take and all the costs involved. Both men showed a high level of skill and experience first in restoring some original brickwork then replacing an inadequate wooden lintel with a substantial steel beam. Now we can continue our DIY decorating and modernising confident that the old house has been given back its former strength and dignity.
We hired Geoff to render our tiered garden walls in a mediterannean style. He and his assistant Paul definately exceeded our expectations. Our formerly brick garden walls were far from in a good state and the care and effort both of them put in turned it into an outstanding character feature. As other reviewers mentioned before Geoff and Paul were always on time and cleaned up after themselves. Geoff is both, knowleadgeable and maticulous in his work and we recommend him to anyone who is looking for an honest tradesman offering good value for your money.
Geoff Gardner has done a wonderful job of rebuilding a very complex wall at my home. He takes pride in his work, and has outstanding craftsmanship skills. He is a lovely lad and is very pleasant to have around while working as he is polite, tidy, hard-working and very knowledgeable about his trade and other matters. His assistant, Paul, is also very professional, pleasant and hard-working. We now have a lovely new wall that blends into the rest of the house perfectly. People have since made very positive comments about Geoff’s work on the wall, and I have already recommended Geoff Gardner to several people. If you want a hard-working, honest, competitive, professional tradesman who turns up on time and completes the job on-time and on-budget, and keeps the place tidy as he goes, then Geoff is your man. We are extremely pleased with the results, and would use Geoff for any further building work.
Geoff provided good communications, arrived on time, fair price, cleaned up after the work. very pleased, would use again and recommend to friends
Geoff Gardner has worked very hard to completely gut my bathroom and rebuild it. He planned it from the beginning and it is now finished and beautiful. Good honest worker who likes perfection. Thank you
I chose to use Geoff Gardner because I knew that he was a St Helens Council Trading Standard's 'Fair Trader'
After my initial phone call he visited my home and assessed the job. He explained that he was busy at that time but was able to do the job in a few weeks. He confirmed the price verbally and I was very happy with the price.
From the outset I felt confident that I was dealing with an honest, hardworking man and I and was not wrong.
Geoff & Paul( his assistant)arrived to do my job on time,looking smart and presentable.They immediately set to work and got on with the job. Both Geoff & Paul are the type of tradesmen who take extreme pride in their work. Both my wife and myself felt comfortable with them working at our home. The job was completed on time and the site left clean and tidy. I will used Geoff Gardner again and would recommend him unequivocally as the best tradesman I have ever used
Very thorough in his work.
Takes time to explain details of work of each phase that is being carried out.
Keeps customer well informed.
Mr Gardner explained all aspects of the job to give us full understanding of the work done,he is a very clean and tidy worker,very friendly and punctual with great all round skills in the building trade.I will recommend him to all my family and friends.
